  5. Use a 5 cm cake pop mould for the raspberry bavarois. Pipe this half full with the raspberry bavarois and push the red fruit cream anglaise into it. Then place in the freezer.
  6. Prepare the chocolate mousse (recipe 5). Use a 7 cm cake pop mould. Use a piping bag to pipe the mould half full.
  7. Press the frozen raspberry bavarois ball in the chocolate mousse.
  8. Level off the baking mould using a scraper or palette knife.
  9. On top, place a moulded almond chocolate biscuit with a 6 cm diameter.
  10. Place the mould in the freezer and leave the desserts to freeze.
  11. Remove the desserts and cover them with the cacao jelly (recipe 6)
